Registration and Logistics
The 2-day event is free and open to everyone. Registration is required for all who plan to participate.
The 2017 event has passed. Check back later for 2018 details.
Students and teachers participate in hands-on activities that demonstrate the exciting work of engineers. Friday’s events are oriented toward 4th through 8th grade students.
In addition to exhibits and activities, high school students and their families can attend presentations for high school and community college students to learn about engineering departments, admission, engineering housing, and the honors program. A schedule of presentations will be posted in early April.
